To play Lotto America, players must pick 2 sets of 6 numbers from 1 to 44. The Quick Pick option lets the computer choose numbers randomly. Multi-Draw allows the same set of numbers to be played for up to 15 draws.

Tickets cost $1 for 2 sets of numbers played per draw.

EZ Match

For an additional $1 per play, you can add the EZ Match feature for a chance to win instant prizes of up to $500. EZ Match prints a random set of 6 numbers on your ticket. If you match the any of the EZ Match numbers with the numbers you played, you instantly win the cash prize printed to the corresponding EZ Match number.

Lotto Doubler

The computer will randomly select certain Lotto tickets as Doubler tickets. These tickets are identified with the message: “This is a Doubler Ticket!” If your ticket is a Doubler ticket, and it wins any non-jackpot prize, the prize is automatically doubled.

Doubler comes at no extra cost.
